Camera di Commercio, Milano


Architectures revealed. Between past and present. The arches of via Meravigli 7 and 9 not only support ceilings, but also a strong past. However, there are still living places that have adapted to new needs in order not to become an inert representative or museum space. They are spaces of metamorphosis that with ease “jump” from the new to the old, from the historical to the added. Past and present, I have concentrated my work on this relationship.

Architetture svelate. Tra passato e presente. Gli archi di via Meravigli 7 e 9 non servono solo a sostenere i soffitti, ma anche un ricco passato. Esistono tuttavia luoghi che hanno saputo adattarsi alle nuove esigenze per non trasformarsi in inerti esposizioni o spazi museali. Sono spazi di metamorfosi che con agilità fanno un salto dal nuovo al vecchio e dallo storico al contemporaneo. Passato e presente. Ho incentrato il mio lavoro su questa relazione.
